In Turkish courses, we aim for our students to develop their language skills related to listening, watching, speaking, reading and writing which they can use all through their lives to communicate effectively, and to develop proper reading and writing habits. We use sound-based teaching in the first reading and writing lessons. The first reading and writing lessons, we teach upright main letters. Following the first reading and writing lesson with textbooks and multi-cultural books, the thematic direction is determined by the goals below in which we aim for:

Our math lessons are designed to improve the mathematical thinking skills of our students. The studies and activities conducted in accordance with this plan follow a sequence that ranges from simple to complex. In order to make matters more comprehensible and concrete, various mathematical materials are used in the courses and practices. In addition, information and communication technologies are also utilized to help strive for further achievements.
